Did you know everything has a measurable frequency? Now before you think you think you got sent to the wrong place; read on! It will all make sense in end. The trees, soil, animals, our bodies, and even our organs have specific frequencies. Now, did you know even our thoughts have actual frequencies? Negative thoughts have low frequencies, lowering our body’s frequency. Positive thoughts raise our frequency. So, in reality, when you walk into the room interrupting an argument, and you can literally feel the tension, you are feeling the lower frequencies of their thoughts and bodies.
Have you heard about the Law of Attraction? Basically -- similar frequencies, or energies, attract similar energies. If you have a higher frequency in your body and mind, you will, in turn, attract others or experiences with positive/higher frequencies in them. Similarly, if you live a life full of negativity, you will most likely find yourself surrounded by other negative energy. Horses are sensitive animals. They will pick up the frequency you carry. This is often why horses won't let you catch them if you enter the pasture if you are full of anxiety, stress, in a rush, or your mind is running wild. Learning how to improve our mindset and emotions is vital to becoming a leader that a horse feels they can trust.
Do you talk to yourself? I’m assuming you’re sitting there, nodding yes. We all do! Now here’s the thing, you need to be speaking to yourself in the right way for things to change! You cannot expect your horse to feel calm and have confidence in you to keep them safe if your self-talk consists of, “I am so overwhelmed; I can’t handle this right now; I’m so stupid; what else could go wrong?” You don't need to be an expert trainer to start developing deep connections with your horse. You have exactly what you need to be a partner and leader!
Your day can't be positive if your thoughts and words are swimming in negativity. Now don’t get me wrong; I understand days can be challenging! But what I am saying is how we think about it, talk about it, and choose to handle situations, which is very important. According to several sources, the average adult has about 6,000 thoughts a day. Do you see how important it is to try and make all those thoughts working for us? If we want to create a connected partnership and be a leader, our horse will trust we must learn to understand our emotions and have an encouraging and welcoming mindset for our equine friends.
